Sweetening the apples with apricot jam and orange juice makes it twice as fruity and adding a little syrup to the oaty crumble makes great little chewy clusters

Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Peel, core and thinly slice the apples and mix with the jam and orange juice. Spread evenly over a buttered 1.5-litre ovenproof dish, not too deep.

  2. Mix the oats, flour and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add the butter in small chunks and rub in gently. Stir in the sugar and rub in again. Drizzle over the syrup, mixing with a knife so it forms small clumps. Sprinkle evenly over the apples and bake for 30-35 mins until the juices from the apples start to bubble up. Cool for 10 mins, then serve with custard, cream or ice cream.

I added a couple of Bramley apples to the eating apples and instead of using apricot jam, I used sweet marmalade which went really well with the orange juice. I had to mix honey with the syrup because I had so little syrup left... but the end result is SO good and I'll be back for more!

I couldn't get Cox's and my substitute was a little too crisp and not as sweet as I would like, although both texture and flavour improved after a day or two. I don't understand the need to double the crumble mixture as the pudding was enough for 8 generous servings. Cream worked best with a less sweet apple but I'd put natural yoghurt with Cox's. Lovely recipe. Tip: Melt the butter gently in a non-stick saucepan, add crumble ingredients, mix thoroughly. Cool slightly but use while still warm.

If you double the crumble recipe and use bramleys instead of Cox' (Cox' make the recipe too sweet), this recipe really works.

This was an excellent crumble although I tweaked it a bit. I used 3 large Bramley apples and 4 Cox's. I didn't have apricot jam so sprinkled some caster sugar on the fruit after I added the orange juice. I doubled up the crumble topping as I wanted the fruit to be well covered but I didn't double the sugar. There is no need to double it as the golden syrup adds extra sweetness.

My sister made this today for after Sunday lunch. Absolutely gorgeous. Really was something more than the usual crumble. Amazed how well eating apples worked. Will be making soon.

love the topping on this! i used bramleys as I had a whole pile to use up and i dribbled a little fruit syrup over and didn't bother with the orange juice or jam. i also halved the sugar in the crumble and it was plenty sweet enough. will be making again this weekend! :)

Great family friendly dish. Very easy to prepare, and the topping feels more healthy than our usual Be-Ro standby

Lovely recipe but the eating apples did not break down enough for my liking - bramleys are better (or a cooking apple generally) if you´re looking for a softer apple base. I used about 60% of the apple weight suggested and the crumble was still a bit sparse - be generous with the quantities when weighing the topping ingredients.

Not bad. The topping is delicious but the apples remained with a bit too much bite. I'd be tempted to put them in on their own for 10 mins before adding the crumble and baking off next time.
